What does an emergency dentist do?

If you have a dental emergency in Clayton, NC, or if you think you might, it’s essential to seek treatment from our emergency dentist as soon as possible.

An emergency dentist relieves your pain and stabilizes your emergency, saving your teeth and more.

Common dental emergency symptoms include:

  • Toothache
  • Jaw swelling
  • Jaw pain

In many cases, these symptoms mean a root infection that requires emergency root canal treatment to avoid tooth loss, infection spread, or extraction.

Other dental emergencies include broken or knocked-out teeth or damage to restorations. Of course, there are other emergencies, but far too many to consider in only a few paragraphs. So, anytime you have an oral health change that does not improve or worsens, you should contact our dental office.

If you’ve had a tooth trauma, we would like to hear from you as well.

Ignoring emergencies or taking pain relievers to get through are not good ideas. On the contrary, they can cost you your smile and mean ongoing treatments to restore your oral health.
